GUY CRITTINGTON MCCOY
"Cripple Creek Farm, CO", 1933 | 35.75x47.75 - oil on canvas
This dynamic painting of daily life on the farm has at its center a woman seated on a stool milking a cow. The viewer's eye is channeled from the center of the canvas and whisked out to a variety of contextual elements such as outbuildings and farm equipment. The colors frequently seen in 1930s paintings---grayed greens, browns, and pinks are used to suggest the Depression era in a whimsical view of a Colorado farm.
